Tottenham star Dembele baffled by Man Utd's LVG decision

Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele has admitted that he was left baffled by Manchester United's decision to sack Louis van Gaal.

The 28-year-old played a key role in AZ Alkmaar's 2008-09 Eredivisie title success under the Dutch manager.

"Louis van Gaal was the manager of a Premier League opponent, and he's just been sacked, but I can't say a bad word about him," he told Belgian newspaper Derniere Heure.

"He taught me a lot at AZ - his trainings, his style of play, his way of motivating us, he was a great.

"I guess he hasn't changed. Nevertheless, he suffered a difficult season at Manchester United.

"For me, that's baffling, but that's football and if I'm the footballer I am today, it's partly thanks to Van Gaal."
